Format: Paperback
How can one book do justice to the HGTV decorating shows? It can't, but I feel that this book does a pretty amazing job of covering all the bases. I like the variety of rooms which seem to be newly created for this book. Either that or I have forgotten if I've seen them on my favorite HGTV shows. I really appreciated the how-to-do-it projects which give me more information than a lot of the HGTV shows actually show or more information than I can scribble down while I watch the shows. This book will keep me busy for a long time as there is a lot to look at (gorgeous photos), a lot of explanations of how to plan a room decorating project, and many how-to projects for every room in the house.

This book shows rooms and ideas that are stylish, realistic, and helpful all at the same time. I'll be using this book as a room makeovers guide for years. Our first project inspired by the book is a kitchen facelift. After seeing a stunning kitchen redo in this book, I finally convinced my husband that we can paint our kitchen cabinets. Great book. Thank you.

My only complaint about the book is that I wanted a book like this one or two years ago. What took HGTV so long to get this book out? I like the room makeovers. The book includes advice on how to redo a room and not just the information about a particular makeover. So the decorating information goes beyond the rooms that are pictured. That is a plus. I like the how-to projects also.

It's about time that HGTV came out with a decorating book. Things go by so fast on TV. I get ideas but not enough of the details. This book is perfect because it spells out details, it explains decorating, and it even has projects with instructions. I also was pleased to see that not all the rooms were those I recognized from TV shows. There are what I think are mostly new rooms in here instead of "reruns" from TV. My only complaint is that I want even more. This is a great book. Now that I got mine, I'm reordering more as holiday gifts for my friends who also are into HGTV.

Format: Paperback
This book has great pix, a lot of decorating advice, and even do-it-yourself decorating projects. I got the book first for all the before and after photos or room makeovers. They're great. What I didn't expect was all the equally great decorating advice and tips plus the projects. Great book. I spend most evenings with HGTV and I'm really glad to have this book. There is so much in it that I know I'll use it over and over again.

This book is absolutely great and very complete. I'm so glad HGTV finally got around to doing a decorating book like this. In my house, HGTV is on most every evening. I don't think these are all rooms from HGTV shows because I didn't recognize them. It seems to be all new photos of the befores and afters supplemented with a wealth of information on what was done and how you can do it yourself. This is a great reference book and an amazing value. Thank you, HGTV.

Format: Paperback
I watch a lot of HGTV, DIY and TLC channels and am hooked on the decorating shows.

I liked this book because it DID give practical info and many of the projects were not budget-busters. I mean the kitchens didn't look like they were using a $75K budget like on Designer's Challenge. Most of the projects seemed more in line of something a DIY could tackle, i.e. painting cabinets, sewing window coverings, wallpapering, etc.

Various decorating styles were covered in this book and I got lots of ideas from it. Most of the included projects did not seem difficult. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for ideas to update their home without spending LOTS of money.

i love watching hgtv and do so almost every day. this book has great ideas and you can do most of the stuff by yourself. there are several projects that i plan to have my husband make for storage. they even let you deside your own style which is great because i love the way just little changes can make your whole room better. one of the better books to decorate with.
